Chelsea, MI, May 23, 2017 – Look around on Saturday mornings, all summer long. You’ll see Yoga in the Park, on the Lawn and by the Lake.  Dexter Wellness Coalition, Dexter Wellness Center, Chelsea Wellness Center, Grass Lake Community Wellness Initiative and 5 Healthy Towns Foundation are partnering to once again offer our popular outdoor yoga and exercises classes.
